The Derby is Coming

DSC_0305I am sure you are all aware the Ranger Derby is coming up on Saturday, January 29th, 2018. Registration starts at 9 AM, Judging for the best show car will be at 10 AM, and the racing will begin (if all goes as planned) around 10:30.  We will be building cars every Wednesday in January, but you must have your car cut by January 17. If you do not, we may not be able to cut it for you, you might have to do it at home. Parents are welcome to come help their son’s build if they want to.

The cost of the event is $10.00 and that includes one Official Ranger Derby Car Kit, a set of car weights, and the race entrance fee. Also, bring your appetites because there will be pizza, chips, soda, and coffee available after 11 for purchase as a fundraiser for the children’s clubs.

As if that is not enough, we will also be having an open class where any adult can build and race a car. So come on out and support the kids or even grab a car and try your hand at racing your best design.DSC_0274

Lastly, we will be having a trial run/pit night Friday the night before the race  (i.e., January, 28th) from 6 – 8 PM. If you want to do any final adjustments or trial runs, the track will be up and running for you to try your car ahead of time. This is a great opportunity for you to really tweak your car, so it goes as fast as possible. The lanes will not be open for practice on race day, so if you want to see your car run ahead of time – this is your opportunity!
